About the QT Registry

The purpose of the International Registry for Drug-Induced Arrhythmias is to learn from cases of drug-induced arrhythmia now so that we can prevent future cases. If you know a patient suspected of having arrhythmias or cardiac arrest due to a drug or drug combination we would like to hear about them. The Registry is not intended for patients with congenital Long QT Syndrome (LQTS) unless the patients have developed arrhythmias directly associated with and, thought to be precipitated by, a drug or drug combination.

  1. Collect data on drug-induced prolongation or eleongation of the QT interval.
  2. Review 12-lead ECGs of patients using new techniques.
  3. Obtain blood or buccal cells for genetic analysis.
  1. To discover all risk factors for Torsades de Pointes.
  2. To develop a test to rapidly predict individuals at risk of drug-induced arrhythmias.
Additional Benefits for Registry Contributors
  1. Telephone or e-mail consultation on your cases.
  2. Anonymous reporting of cases to the FDA MedWatch Program.
